The nature of gambling is recreational. Most people gamble for fun and from time to time only. However, for several reasons, some people are more liable to develop an addiction as outlined in our articles How and Why We Become Addicted To Gambling. It would thus be appropriate for you to take certain precautions in order to prevent false beliefs from intruding in this recreational activity.
If you are already exhibiting at-risk gambling behaviours, you are maybe on the verge of developing an addiction that may have serious repercussions on your life and those of your loved ones. Take the test to find out if you are at-risk.
In order for gambling to remain recreational, it is important to adopt good habits.
Games are an essential activity for the development of little ones and entertainment for adults. Games of money and chance are for adults only and carry certain risks. Watching out for signs of loss of control is therefore key. If you spot signs of gambling in yourself or a loved one, do not hesitate to talk to someone trustworthy and do not be too hard on yourself: no one is immune to losing control in one area or another of their life.
